October 18This year has seen the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and this (among so many) is a movement we need to acknowledge and celebrate.

October 11, 2020In the US, the second Monday in October is observed as Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a day that honors and celebrates the histories and cultures of Native/Indigenous People as an alternative to the historic “Columbus Day” in the US. Our guest Minister, Rev. Elder Diane Fisher offers reflections arising from her own experience as a First Nations Canadian. In her childhood, Diane lived on a Cree Nation Reserve in the far North of Canada, where her life and spirituality were formed and influenced by her own and many other grandmothers. Our worship will include wisdom from other indigenous people from around the world. October 4, 2020 We honor the Jewish festival of Sukkot by reflecting on the perspective that living exposed to the world can give us. Drawing on the ancient roots of the festival as well as its current observations, we focus on questions about what living “outside” may teach us about insecurity and survival, what observing our lives from a different/opposite perspective might show us, and what we might have to celebrate about the insights that emerge from this time.
